NAO Policy Lab: The Role of Foundations In Gap Funding for Nonprofits
Too many charitable nonprofits in Oregon are impacted by late payments from government grants, contracts, or appropriations. We also know that there are foundations that have worked with government to find the supports to nonprofits with low-cost bridge funding. Join a conversation with Oregon nonprofits and foundations to learn about a collaborative effort by New York City foundations to provide no-interest loans, returnable grant funds, and arts capital loans to the nonprofit sector. We will feature guest speakers from the Fund for New York City who will explain how this effort started and what it has meant to the nonprofit sector. We’ll discuss what Oregon nonprofits and funders can learn from their experience.
Policy Labs are part of NAO's Modernizing Grant Funding and Contracting Project. They are discussion groups focused on specific grant-making and contracting issue areas that aim to develop and advance policy concepts legislatively.
This session is free and available to NAO and GOSW members only.
